As part of our new lighting collection for Visual Comfort, Thomas informed me that he has named a fixture after me!  Despite the obvious reason for this being a must-have lamp, I am especially fond of the traditional form made modern through the choice of materials.  I was lucky enough to see it in person when we were down in High Point for Market and not only was this lamp featured but the entire new line was there to view.  Stay tuned for more new pieces from the line, and be the first of your friends to own this lamp!

AERO Essentials: Number 3 of 5

Hallings Secretary
by Thomas O'Brien for Hickory Chair

39" x 20.5" x 71.75"
Standard Antique Ivory Finish with interior Classic Finish

As striking open as it is closed, the spare lines of this sophisticated secretary recall the chic style of a 1940’s French design. The understated case is raised by a subtle saber leg, topped by a discreet hinged compartment and finished standard in Antique Ivory. The secretary’s interior is executed in richly toned kingwood with a Classic finish interior and is outfitted with a variety of drawers, round ring pulls, Hepplewhite knobs and a leather-insert desktop.

If you are looking to achieve the classically modern look of a Thomas O'Brien room this piece is definitely an essential!

Soaring With Style

Canvas Travel Bag
14" x 15" x 7"


This bag is screaming for a weekend vacation!  Dating back to 1970, the bag is constructed of laminated canvas and brown leather with a red and maize horizontal band.  The bag is in great condition and is a must have for any jet setter!  It reminds of a time when traveling whether it be to Pittsburgh or Paris was such a luxury.

Aluminum Candy Dish
16" x 12" x 2"


This vintage candy dish circa 1950 is amazing!  Made of solid aluminum the dish consists of three leaves that braid into a stem handle.  This dish is the perfect vessel for sweets at your harvest feast and even has a sculptural quality that can be the crowning jewel on your Saarinen coffee table.

Game Night Gets Chic

Vintage Concave                  Card Table
39" x 39" x 29"


 This table from the 1950's has folding iron hairpin legs and features hand tooled and pierced butterscotch leather.  I love that it can be used as an everyday table or folded away for storage in a city where every inch of square footage counts!
